DJax? Nah. Too easy, too over-used. Action Jackson? Same thing. Long Gone DeSean? Ehh, not bad. Fraction Jackson? Getting better. Uno Cero? Funny, but one of those in the NFL is quite enough, thank you. Basically, after the year DeSean Jackson had in 2009, the kid obviously needs a nickname. Look at his TDs for instance. Most fans would consider a 60-yard touchdown something special to see. Now get this: The average distance of DeSean’s first 10 touchdowns in 2009 (7 receiving, 1 rush, 2 punt returns) was 61.3 yards per TD!!! If that kind of stat doesn’t deserve a nickname, I don’t know what does. The only problem with Jackson’s game is that he’s so fast, it makes it really tough to watch him play. I always feel like I need a new flat-screen TV or an eye-test or something after an Eagles game because frankly, every time he touches the ball, he just ends up looking like a little green blur cruising across the screen.
